A Naive Suggestion

Next time, why don’t candidates for public office tell us, in terms of policy and style, how they will govern and let us decide if we want to be governed that way?

At a recent Harvard University Institute of Politics Campaign Managers Conference, Matt Rhoades, Mitt Romney’s campaign manager, said this about the process of gaining the nomination. “When you're running for the nomination, you've got to win the nomination. If you're looking beyond securing the nomination too much, you are jeopardizing your chances of winning the nomination.”

Now the people who wanted Governor Romney to be our President presumably knew how he would govern and, if not, I image at least Governor Romney knew how he would govern. The same is true of all the other candidates including President Obama. So why not just tell us how you will govern and why we should think you can govern that way and let us decide if we agree with you?

I know. I know. Now back to reworking my paper on the Tiryns alphabetic inscription.
